My husband called down into the basement to wish our 8 year old daughter a good morning.  Her response…

 

“I’m not down here!  Please call again…”  😉

Me – Am I the wave of your future?

Him – No, you’re my density.

Me – Huh? You mean your destiny?

Him – No, watch Back to the Future.

Me – Ok… George McFly.

#MidnightMadness – 5/26/2017

The other day I told my daughter (15) that all of the forks were being washed in the dishwasher and so she’d have to use a spoon to eat her meal.  I had a serving spoon on the counter for her to dish up her meal with, and I figured she’d grab a normal size spoon out of the silverware drawer to eat with.

When I came back a little while later, I found her eating her salad with this…

Yes!  That’s the serving spoon!  I took one look at her and said, “Why aren’t you using a regular sized spoon to eat with?”  She looked at me with wide confused eyes and then began to laugh so hard she could barely talk…  She said, “Oh mom, I thought you meant all the silverware was in the dishwasher and I had to eat with the serving spoon!”

Anyway, it was really funny, and she’s such a petite little person.  So to see her trying to eat with this huge serving spoon made us both laugh.

And look at the difference in size!  Lol… 😉

So, I was in a rush this morning and tried to save myself some time by putting all the eggs together in one skillet.  Here’s what happened… lol.

My daughter Brianna (15) took one look and said…

“Mom, something went wrong there…”

 

Do you think perhaps she’s correct in her assessment?  Lol… 😉

And just so you know… I didn’t break a single yoke when flipping them over.  So it wasn’t a complete disaster.  🙂

This is for those of you who commented on the orange peeler yesterday.  I found a tutorial that shows how to use it.  Now you’ll be able to efficiently peel oranges at midnight whenever you want!  Lol….  😉

“Hey Mom!  What is this, a knitting needle?”

Caitlyn Cook (daughter, age 23)

 

How many of you know what this is?  I suppose it could pass for a crochet needle, but it’s actually an orange peeler.  My girls never cease to surprise me by their odd questions, even at this age.  Lol…. 😉

Certain discoveries were made today at the lunch table…

“Look mom!  A head with a hat!”

~Autumn Cook (Age 8)

I never knew blueberries and raspberries could look like people.  Lol…  😉

Blogger friend Trent, from Trent’s World has graciously given us a new word to add to the dictionary.  Compty is the word, and it means… wanting to comment on a blog post but coming up empty when you try.  So here’s a poem I promised to write about it.  And just in case you missed it, this goes along with last night’s Midnight Madness; which you can check out here.

 

Compty

Is a very unique word

One you’ve probably

Never even heard

 

It’s a word made up

By our blogger friend Trent

Who decided to tell me

What this awesome word meant

 

So have no fear

This magical word is now here

Its meaning is simple and easy

And won’t leave you feeling queasy

 

It has to do with

Wanting to comment on a blog

During those frustrating times

When your brain is in a fog

 

It’s then that you can’t quite

Figure out what to say

So you just end up leaving

And going on your merry way

 

So thank you Trent

For sharing your word

It really is lovely

And not at all absurd

 

It’s too bad nobody else

Was brave enough to submit any more

Get with the program all you other bloggers

And don’t be such a bore!  😉

 

Written by, Michelle Cook
